Hardwood Floor Refresh

This 65 year old floor needed help. I rented a drum sander to strip down multiple layers of old finish and flatten lots of floor imperfections. I used my Ryobi Sanders for stripping all of the floor edges, corners, and 1000 linear feet of trim throughout the house. It was rewarding to be able to salvage all the original materials.

Once I applied the polyurethane I needed to lightly sand between coats and didn’t want to rent any more equipment. My ONE+ Corner Cat sander worked great for final sanding between coats.

  • Thanks.  It took me a while to finish everything in that I worked on it by myself on evenings and weekends,  I really gained an appreciation for the three different ONE+ sanders I have, they worked great and we invaluable in getting the job done.
